New outdoor season - New toys?
« on: February 07, 2019, 08:59:44 am »

In a few months time the 2019 outdoor season will open. Mine will start late april.

Are any of you getting new systems or other equipment in preparation for this?

For me, i am looking at systems in the ~95-100dB@100' category. Haven't made a decision though. Still have 2 months ;)

Got me a good cargo van late last year, very happy that I don't need to rent a trailer for most of my shows this year!

Been selling off my original K-series speakers and upgrading to the K.2's - I'm especially fond of the 8.2's as monitors for small stages.

We have started moving to the QLX-D with the dual and quad receivers so we have Dante.  Replacing our QSC K12 with EAW RSX129 speakers.  Adding some more Crown MA9000i amps.

Outgoing: Mackie DL1608 - Still plan to use it though.

Incoming: Soundcraft Ui24 - picked up a refurb for $600.

My main summer gig is a 1000 person weekly concert in the park, using an SRX powered system (not concert level).

Is that A or C weighted?

What about the response time?

Or peak?

Often there is a 30dB (or more) difference between A slow and unweighted peak SPL numbers.

Since 30dB is a factor of 1000, it DOES make a difference what parameters are associated with the SPL number.

Since you are trying to "hit a targetr", it helps to know exactly what the target is.

Working on a new splitter system. 12 channel modules, can be linked for more channels. Dual LK37 inputs, direct out+direct out with ground lift and 2x trafo isolated outputs on LK37 + xlr outs.

Hey Guys,

   I'm thinking about getting some better speakers for the talking head things that we do. I've been using 4 EON 612's in a long 125ft by 60ft wide building at the local fairgrounds. Metal, high ceiling and concrete floors. And I've always had trouble getting the "oomph" out of them; probably because they don't have any.  And let's face it, Joe Blow the guest speaker doesn't have great mic technique.

   Thinking of the PRX because they would pay for themselves faster,  but might break down and get the SRX-P and just "buy once cry once".

Maybe look into some of the rcf offerings with larger hf drivers and lower crossover frequencies. Should give you better vocal projection.
